Taylor Swift described the album as being 13 tracks about what kept her up at night, which has led fans to speculate that the album will be similar to her last new bodies of work, Folklore, and Evermore, regarding tone and overall direction of the songs.

Who Besides Taylor Swift Has An Album Coming Out On October 21?
THE LONELIEST TIME 💌 Oct 21. I’m quite fascinated by loneliness. It can be really beautiful when you turn it over and look at it. Just like love, it can cause some extreme human reactions.

The music industry can be a competitive place. Although there is much excitement regarding Taylor’s new album, pop fans should know that Carly Rae Jepsen has a new album releasing the same day. Carly’s album is called The Loneliest Time. She has already released several songs from the album, including Beach House.
Artists often avoid releasing new albums the same day bigger artists do. However, in the age of streaming, it doesn’t matter as much as it did when fans had to buy music.
